LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - The incredibly talented writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee, best known for such iconic characters as the X-Men, Thor, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four, has died. He was 95. His superhero storytelling literature engulfed the movie business. Think of “Spider-Man.” It's success was followed by two sequels, Spider-Man 2 in 2004, and Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Think of “Iron Man,” another Hollywood hit personified by its mega-star, Robert Downey Jr., and so forth. Through endless work with frequent artist-writer collaborators Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko, among others, Lee took Marvel Comics from a micro business into the world's No. 1 publisher of comic books. In 2009, The Walt Disney Co. bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion.
